Yeah, it has a slightly larger diameter than a Roc. It probably helps contribute to the glide.

Total agreement. Discraft plastic is such major reason why I don't bag more of their discs.

The grip on my swirl glows is so bad I'll probably end up selling them. Hate it.

Unfortunately I agree on the swirl glo ESP. I have 2 of the Wasps and sold the MJ Comet I had. I have a couple 2018 swirly ESP (not glo) that are a touch less firm that have better grip than the glo.

So washing them didn't help? That's a bummer.

This was THE Comet, though:

Tournament Pro plastic, got it in 1997. I remember cleaning the persistent layer of black crud off of it to take a picture and being surprised how nice it looked. I got it right about the time O Rocs started disappearing and I switched to Comets, it was my go-to until I moved to Chicago and gave up Comets because of all the wind. That was dumb, but whatever.

Not that it helps ranger figure out that he's going to ignore my advice and get an ESP or Big Z Comet, but I had a picture!
I threw a green Z Great Lakes Comet I found for a while while I was trying to find out who the owner was. After I returned their disc, I bought the orange Elite X Comet here. Had to get the rest of the family together for the picture, of course!
